The jetsetter's holiday beauty gift guide
Know a jet setting gal? We all do! This holiday season, give her the gift of beauty with these luxe and convenient travel goodies. Who knows, maybe the kind gesture will score you a sweet souvenir on her next getaway!
You know those hotel shampoos? Yep, well they mean well, but they don't do anything for most women's hair. This year, give your BFF the gift of beautiful hair while she's on the road with Oribe's travel-friendly kit (oribe.com, $20) of shampoos, conditioners and masques.
Another travel hair goodie to consider? Umberto Beverly Hills' hydrating set of shampoo, conditioner and spray! (Target.com, $13)
Instead of lugging around several travel (or full) sized versions of your fave makeup items, I always recommend taking one palette with all you'll need. After all, when it comes to travel beauty, less is really more. Lucky for you, bareMinerals has a pretty snazzy eyes, lips and cheek palette that comes in an adorable bag. Perfect for the traveling lady, right? (sephora.com, $39)
Toting around all your brushes can get to be a pain in the you know what when you're traveling. Luckily for you, Sonia Kashuk has an adorable and compact brush set perfect for the lady on the go! The 24 Karat Four-Piece Holiday Brush Set features four brushes and an adorable bag. Quite a deal, no? (target.com, $15)
As far as skin care goes, toting along small yet effective products always helps keep skin glowing, even on those long flights. One kit to try this year? Yes To Cucumbers' On-the-go Facial Kit, featuring facial towelettes, a travel-sized mask and a mini lip butter. (yestocarrots.com, $10)
Give your traveling chick everything she needs to keep her skin sensational while on the road with this fabulous set from Ole Henriksen! The Celebrate Flawless Skin Kit includes the brand's Truth Serum Collagen Booster, Truth Crème Advanced Hydration, Ultimate Lift Eye Gel and African Red Tea Cleanser and is housed in a vibrant bag she'll love! (qvc.com, $73)
Beautiful body care
Traveling can often make your skin dry and what lady wants that? To make sure your traveling BFF keep hers soft and supple, we've rounded up a few fab gift options. The first? LaLicious' Luxe Body Bundle (lalicious.com, $50). This delicious set includes a full sized sugar exfoliating scrub and shea butter body lotion and is the perfect treat away from home.
If your frequent flier is always complaining about how dry her hands get when she's traveling, it's time you gifted her this moisturizing set from Jurlique (jurlique.com, $62). We're betting she'll appreciate it even more knowing that the lotions are made of safe ingredients.
Hands and feet
Traveling ladies don't always have the time to stop in for a mani-pedi, so planning ahead is key. The latest gel manicure trend helps ladies keep their nails photo-ready for weeks at a time, and now you can get a salon-worthy gel mani at home with Gelish MINI’s at home gel polish system! For under $100, you can get a complete at-home kit that will leave your nails chip free for weeks. (sallybeauty.com, prices vary depending on kit)
Any jet setting gal can tell you that traveling can take a toll on your tootsies. The best thing to do when you get home after that long flight? Soak your feet with Avon's Foot Works Pomegranate Chocolate Collection (shop.avon.com, $13). The affordable set includes a soothing foot soak, smoothing foot scrub, moisturizing foot cream and comfy slipper socks.
